Family Forever

I never met my cousin Joe as he was killed in action 5 months before I was born. Our family never really recovered from any loss from war ( my mom's brother was killed in Korea). Joey was my dad's best man at his wedding. We forever honored Joey every Memorial Day, taking my children to the Vietnam Memorial and the traveling Memorial Walls at the shore. My family always remember this gentle soul. Thank you to all who served, gave the ultimate sacrifice, or are still serving. May God Bless.

Boot Camp Buddies

Upon getting to our boot camp platoon,our drill sargent,McGrail asked if anyone was from Philadelphia. Joe, a guy named George and myself spoke up. We were then told that we had better be better than the rest as McGrail was from Philly.Joe, George and I become friends. I remember Joe saying he was going airborne and realized he would most likely go to Nam. I wound up in Germany for 31 months.I just made a trip to DC and found his name on the Wall. Still feeling sad and guilty that I didn't go.To his family, my condolences. Joe was a great guy in the little bit of time I knew him.

Gone but never forgotten . . .

Since 1971, Memorial Day has always been rather sad for me because we lost a "happy-go-lucky" guy who fought for our freedom . . . I always hear your rendition of "Rollin" whenever I am down in the dumps and it makes me smile . . . Thanks Joey Sweeney for your ultimate sacrifice ! ! !

Hello from lost family.

My brother-in-law searched My sister's, (The Sweeney) side of the family, for a school project for my nephew. He came across you Joe. All I know is that your father was related to my Grandfather. Thomas Sweeney from Scranton Pa. I was just a baby when you laid down your life. You will be happy to know that your distant cousins from up north grew up to be good men, husbands, and fathers. We will meet in the future. I just want to let you know that myself and my son will do our best to let any and all of Sweeney Clan remember your name and your ultimate sacrifice. May God hold you in His arms. Billy From Scranton, Pa.
